The 'den' is not a thing of beauty, in fact I would go so far as to say it's a bit of an eye-sore! But it's evolved over the years with a window added here, a mezanine level there, a floored roof so you can stand on it - and jump off it, of course. I think there's an old wheel attached to the wall inside to serve as a ship's wheel, so it has many functions for various imaginary games (and not for the faint-hearted!). Looks like I'm stuck with it for another few years!!Sometimes we have a bit of a 'palette-overload', mostly ones which have deteriorated over the years - so they serve well to make a big bonfire, which is what is happening with the ones in the top pic - my 'other half's' task this afternoon. Not sure if this will stay unlit until 'bonfire-night' but it made a good furnace last year anyhow! Nice and sunny today to be scrabbling about outside but it was a bit too cold for me so I decided just to document it and run back inside again! I had hoped to be doing some work on these 'aperture' cards - a simple idea for selling at the craft fair. More assembly than craft, but the tweed looks lovely poking out of the pre-cut shapes! The baby-grow or 'onesie' on the right is the only one I've done, but I like the simplicity of it.
However, I ended up packing 'Big S's' bag for his school trip next week - his first time away from home - Aaaaargh!! Hope he manages without his guitar, mountain of snacks, TV, music system and er .... um, his Mum!! Ooops! We won't know what has hit us without the strain of his electric guitar through the house - well it's only 4 nights!
